HX (Hurtigruten Expeditions) now offers even more for modern expedition cruisers and simplifies the product for travel advisors with all-inclusive offerings, starting with Antarctica and Galápagos itineraries in October 2024 and rolling out fleet-wide in November.

The all-inclusive offering aims to enhance the onboard guest journey and is part of a larger project to create the ultimate expedition cruise experience.

From October 2024 (on Antarctica and Galápagos expeditions first), regular cabin prices will include all daily expeditions and activities, full-board dining, all-day alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages, free Wi-Fi, onboard and onshore Science Centre activities, access to onboard amenities, professional photography, Hurtigruten Foundation initiatives and take-home gear and reusable water bottle.

HX CCO Alex Delamere-White said the changes directly respond to guest and partner feedback to simplify the offering for cruisers and travel advisors selling the product.

“Expedition cruising can be a complex product for agents to sell, given the unique destinations we visit and varying experiences by operator. We’re confident that by including so many elements as standard in the price, we can simplify life on board and enhance our trade-friendly focus.”

“We want our guests to fully embrace being curious travellers when they’re with us. By making things as easy as possible, they can focus on exploring remote parts of the world and learning from our expert team.

“We believe adventure should be all-inclusive, which is why our daily expeditions, talks and access to the science centre come at no extra cost, alongside delicious food and drink.”

HX Managing Director, Asia Pacific Damian Perry added: “This initiative will resonate with our Australian and New Zealand guests who are naturally curious about the destinations we visit, appreciate the authenticity of our experiences and align with our sustainability stance.”
